UVB Basking Bulb

Postby Skyhighjinks » Sat Jun 20, 2020 5:39 am

Good Afternoon all,

So I've baught "Arcadia D3 UV Basking Lamp, 100 W, E27" which emits UVA and UVB, so I need my 10.0 fluorescent UVB tube light anymore once it arrives or is it save to have it running anyway for when she's not basking?

Thanks all :D

Your Arcadia MVB should provide enough UVB and heat over the basking site when set at an appropriate distance (about 12-14''/30-35cm). If you have a large enclosure you could still use the T5 and set it to the front or back but you want to still have areas without UVB and provide a good gradient, just as you do with heat. Test it out and see how your dragon reacts with either setup and base your changes off of their reaction and behavior.
